Happy Groundhog Day or is it Candlemas?

"In February, Little Groundhog awoke and drowsily ambled up to the burrow entrance. 
The wind made him shiver. 
He saw his shadow and hurried back inside.
“Oh my,” he said. “This will be a long winter.”
Weeks later, he awoke with a start. 
“It’s spring!” he shouted, and up he scuttled to the burrow entrance…”

Celebrating Chinese New Year

"The shimmering, frolicking
Lion Dance banishes last year’s
troubles and welcomes the new
year’s promises. As one person
hoists the lion’s head, and 
another moves with the body
and tail, the lion begins to dance. 
Musicians beat a thunderous
rhythm with a drum, a gong
and cymbals, tempting the lively
lion to prance and jump."

I have a Dream, by Martin Luther King Jr.

I have a dream

"I HAVE A DREAM that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but the content of their character. 
I have a dream today!

I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, 
with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping 
with the words of interposition and nullification, 
one day, right there in Alabama, little black boys and little black girls 
will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers. 
I have a dream today!…”
